Santa delivered last week on Friday. Hadn't had the time to reply till now.

My Secret Santa is VFTnpups, received two Venus flytrap cultivars, G17(Megatraps) and Ginormous, both potted! Thanks VFTnpups! Also had a very nice note inside, thanks!

I want to join next year too. Right now, I just have either one of each plant, or a bunch of tiny seedlings.

That's pretty much what I had too but you can also send cuttings and seeds. I was able to send three sets of cuttings and just two baby plants.

It has arrived!! Came in great condition.

It had an unrooted N. tobiaca cutting and a D. prolifera. Thank you so much @Bluefire!

A few questions for you, Bluefire:
That's an activated node on it, right? Should I root it in sphagnum, water, or perlite and water? I never know which is best. And do you have a picture of the mother plant which you took the cuttings form? Again, thank you so much!!!

He might've left the exchange. Remember Panman got us all a new person?

That's right. It has an activated node.
I have only ever had success with rooting in Sphagnum, so I'd go with that.
I'm sorry I didn't send as much as you did. Pretty much all I had extras of was my D. prolifera and a bunch of Pinguicula. And I figured you'd rather have Drosera than Pings.

I have attached a photo of a pitcher on my N. tobaica. I grow it on the windowsill now, but the photo is from when it was still in a high humidity environment. It had better pitchers then...

If the cutting doesn't work, the thing's a monster and I'm sure I could send another.

I'll do it in sphagnum then, thanks.

No problem, don't feel bad at all. I sent you more but it was all worth less anyways. The only thing worth anything was the Trev's Red Dentata. Everything else wasn't worth much. And yeah, Drosera are more my jam. Pings never grow great for me and there are really only a few I like.

Yeah, same for you. If your cuttings don't make it just PM me and I can send more. Just curious: has your plant flowered and is it a basal cutting? I don't think it is considering it has uppers but the pitchers look smaller than what you're holding in the pic.
